COGEN Europe and the European Heating Industry (EHI)
14:30h – 16:00h MANS Room, Charlemagne Building, European Commission Rue de la Loi 170, B-1000 Brussels
Focus Areas:
Energy labelling
Type of Event:

The side event is organised in conjunction with the Conference on Product Policy – International Trends in Ecodesign & Energy labelling (20-21/02/2014).

With the recent publication of Delegated Regulation No. 811/2013, defining an EU-wide energy labelling scheme for space heaters, the large untapped potential for energy savings in buildings now appears to be within closer reach in Europe.

The session will explore the industry’s expectations regarding the energy labelling framework for space heaters in terms of rewarding innovation and motivating consumers to consider more efficient products.

Presenters and participants will share their insights on the expected impact of energy labelling on product development, distribution chains and sales and marketing.

A detailed programme and registration details will be made available shortly.
